Grow your own food AND help raise funds for the Outdoor Classroom!

Teach your kids how to grow food by renting a Mary Lin Garden bed this summer!!! Students planted various veggies and flowers in our current garden: peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, basil, cucumbers, squash, zinnias, and cosmos. All vegetables were started as seedlings, but the zinnias and cosmos were seeded. This is a great way to have fresh organic veggies this summer and to have your children involved with the garden! Don’t worry if you will be away part of the summer. ‘Garden families’ are happy to water for each other. You can even share a bed with another family. Planted Bed rentals are $75 and unplanted beds in the NEW garden are $60. They will be ready for planting soon! We will use these funds to help our students learn and grow in the garden during the school year.

First come, first served! Make out your check to “Mary Lin Elementary”, write “Summer Garden Bed’ in the comment line, and place it in the P.T.A. mailbox marked “GREGG RICE” or deliver to teacher Gregg Rice.
